SOURCE: Car stops moving in reverse gear
Sounds like the car is just slipping out of gear. Keep your hand on the shifter when you back up next time. See if you can feel the shifter move when the car comes out of gear. If the shifter moves up when it happens keep pressure on the shifter holding it back like you dont want it to move forward. And of course if the shifter moves back when it comes out of gear, put forward pressure on the shifter so it doesnt slip out. This might work for now but but i know i wouldnt want to spen 700 for that ****. Let me know how it goes.

i have the same problem its with the clutch its either the pressure plate , release bearing , or a clutch spring unfortunately and costs around 600$ to fix the neons have a "modular" clutch witch means that you buy a clutch/ flywheel combo unlike most cars that you buy seperately its pre assembled and a pain to replace for good measure go to a reputable transmission shop and have them check it (be shure they do a free check first) unless you have the tools and time to DIY

sorry man your problem is your computer detected a problem in your transmission that needs to be open,more likely needs a new set of clutches..........the set is not to expensive but the actual labor is,so good luck.
